This week was one of my favourite times of year – Melbourne Fashion Week! I love seeing not only the fashion on the runway but also in the crowd. I went with a classic Melbourne look, pairing a black pinafore with a mustard turtleneck and sneakers. And I had to add my YSL shoulder bag to accessorise.

Choosing the right material is so important when going on a hot, summer holiday. I made the mistake of bringing along a lot of viscose and polyester which I quickly discovered didn’t breathe in the heat wave that I experienced.

Luckily, I had this airy cotton outfit at my disposal which worked perfectly as a light, night time outfit to wear to dinner. Another great alternative is to invest in some good linen items – I bought some shorts and a top in Milos and have been living in them!

4 Swimsuits To Bring On Your Beach Holiday

Continuing with my summer series, I have put together some of my essential swimsuits I bring with me to beach holidays.

Ok, so maybe you don’t need to bring all of these. But if you’re like me, you still will!

 

Strapless Bikini

A strapless bikini top is always a good option on tanning days when you want to avoid those tan lines. I also find them particularly good when my shoulders are burnt and my normal bikini straps won’t cut it.

Colourful Top: Zimmermann | Black Top: Pretty Little Thing | Black Bottoms: Seafolly

 

One-Piece

I think it’s always a good idea to bring along a one-piece on your beach holiday. It’s a great option when you want to be a bit covered up and it also looks great with shorts or a skirt to go for food after a day at the beach.

Classic Two-Piece

A classic triangle or bralette style bikini is great for when you’re at the beach playing games or just generally messing around. The halter neck or bralette design will keep it perfectly in place regardless of what you might be doing!

The Fun One

I always like to bring along a kind of different, fun piece that I can play around with using accessories, in particular, sunglasses. I love playing around with different colours and styles to make bikinis a bit more fun and fashionable to wear!

Over the next few weeks I will be posting a whole lot of summer stuff as I am currently on holiday in the Greek Islands. To start off my mini summer series I thought I’d share a summer outfit.

There is currently a heat wave in Greece and I have been struggling to find anything that is summery enough in my wardrobe. This outfit has been fantastic for the sunny days with a super airy skirt and light top. Sunglasses and a cap are essential during the day so I paired it with navy accessories to pick up the colour in the skirt. I also really like the brightness of the top to add a real pop of summer colour to the outfit!

T-shirt: The Ragged Priest | Dress: Urban Outfitters | Jeans: Dr Denim | Sneakers: Nike

 

I tend to find it hard to dress up in the middle of winter because actually being warm is a high priority of mine. This outfit really caters to a comfy, warm but interesting look. The long jeans keep your legs warm and with a leather or bomber jacket on top it is a perfect going out outfit for the colder months! Not to mention having a shimmery dress over the top of a jeans and t-shirt outfit really adds a point of interest.

T-shirt: Stylenanda | Pants: Stylenanda | Sneakers: NO NAME | Bag: Replica Louis Vuitton

 

I love styling oversized tops and tighter bottoms for a casual but put together look. The texture on the pants adds a cool element to the look and plus are super warm! Stylenanda is currently my favourite place to look for clothes and they have everything I ever want, both for casual and fancy looks.

Harajuku Shopping

Top: Vintage Slazenger | Mesh Long Sleeve: ASOS | Pleated Pants: Topshop | Puffer Jacket: Uniqlo | Fishnets: ASOS | Sneakers: NO NAME | Earrings: Curated Wholesale | Sunglasses: Dior

 

I recently went on a trip to Japan and when I was in Tokyo, I had a good shopping day in Harajuku. It was a bit cold so i went with a puffer jacket and mesh top underneath to keep warm. Some of my favourite stores were Kinji for vintage clothing and XLARGE for street fashion.
